Product Description

Dryer Thermal Fuse Specifications

The Dryer Thermal Fuse (Thermal Cutoff, Temperature Fuse) is a 2 by ½ inch, white, plastic safety mechanism that stops the flow of electricity to the motor circuit when a dryer overheats. If the fuse is missing or broken, your dryer will not start. A thermal fuse fails when the exhaust temperature exceeds the fuse rating, that is when the temperature rises above the temperature that the fuse is designed to handle. This can occur when a heating element is shorted, a regulating thermostat or thermister fails, or with a partially restricted exhaust vent. The fuse attaches to the blower wheel housing. It must be replaced when there is no longer continuity between the terminals. This is a one-time fuse, meaning it cannot be re-set. The replacement part features two 3/16 inch terminals.

Dryer quit heating.
This dryer is 30 plus years old. I am a 71 year old female that has never taken on this type of repair. First I very carefully ordered all parts possibly associated with this problem. Watched all videos available for this model. Could not find one at Parts Select that addressed this particular dryer. Model number was correct. Finally found YouTube video that addressed an "Old Kenmore Wood Top". It showed the correct way to remove the Heating Element unit. Also Parts Select never mentions that fuses and sensors are not "polarized". Very important info for a novice. But Google helped me with that. Heating Element is "polarized", very important not to cross wires. I did order a couple Heating Element Connection Wire Kits that were not needed for this repair. Got all parts replaced, put dryer back together, crossed my fingers and turned it on, so far it has been working really well. I chose to replace all the parts I did because of the dryers age, plus I am not familiar with multimeters. Didn't want to risk one old part messing up a new part. Thank you Parts Select.
It is not a 2 hr. repair, but I worked slowly, didn't want to make any mistakes. It would be good if everyone is aware of some of the above information and the YouTube video done by an individual on this particular dryer.

Dryer would intermittently work on economy drying, never on timed dry. (Heat failed tumbler was always good)
Disconnect power cord. Removed upper and lower panels. Disconnected "push on" spade connectors and removed the single screw holding each device and removed same. Timer had a two multi wire plug and 2 screws. Reversed process and installed same. Was fairly sure only timer was bad. But due to age of dryer and posts found here, decided to just install fuse and cut out. Everything works perfect!

Timer not advancing
Timer-Removed the screws from top back panel from behind the dryer. Removed the screws on timer. Replaced one wire connection at a time. Remounted timer and put panel back on.

Thermal fuse- also because it seams to fail a lot and I was already working on the dryer. Removed lower back panel. Found fuse. Unscrewed the one screw. Disconnected fuse and put new one in. Kept old one as a back up.

Total time between replacing the thermal fuse and the timer-1/2 hr.

A little pricey, but the dryer is only 3 yrs old and I was able to fix it! Hope it will last us for several years.

The dryer took at least 3 rounds to dry light clothes and 4-5 for towels.
This was my second time making repairs. The only difference this time I replaced all parts from top to bottom. When I pulled the heating element out only one coil was working the others had burned out. It was easy to do and the videos on the site are very helpful and informative. I followed the steps and if I thought I missed a step I replayed it again. I am a woman and found it very easy and not at all intimidating at all. I am going to hopefully have it for another 10 yrs. You guys keep up the good work.

Will not start at all
Followed the videos and it was simple. For me, the videos take all of the anxiety out of the job.

Ultimately it was the motor that failed, but replacing the start relay and thermal fuse was a simple task

My dryer would get hot, but not stay hot enough to dry the average load
1st I unplugged the dryer.
I reviewed the awesome blueprint that I printed out of my specific model , which is provided by this great website. I located each area that I would need to make the replacement of parts, by highlighting it on the blueprint. I removed the nut at the dryer light, inside the dryer. Removed the light cover & replaced the bulb, put the cover back on, tighten the nut.
I removed all the nuts from the back, remove the exhaust tube, removed the rear panel. I realized that the exhausted tube was kind of heavy. It was extremely clogged with lint so thick , I couldn't see through it & it was also holding water that weighed down the exhaust tube. So disgusting !! I immediately went to my HomeDepot to purchase a new 8' foiled exhaust tube & 2 elbow connectors. Installed it & reused the tightening clamps at each elbow . Wasn't expecting any of this in the plan. I realized that this was probably the culprit of the steamy dryer. I put the rear panel on, without installing the other two parts that I purchased. I put at load of wet laundry in the dry & ran it. The load was completely dry in the first cycle. Problem solved. I would like to say that this website gave me the resources, knowledge & confidence to believe that I could make the repair myself & that was the only reason I moved forward to complete the task. In a sense, this company has saved me,my family & our home from a potential fire. So people of the world please take the time to check your air flow visually inside the exhaust tube . Thank You PartSelect ??

Got heat only on start of cycle and no repeat of flame. Suspected coils on gas valve.
I used a multi meter to find coils failed in warmed temperature condition.
I tested main switch for different cycle operation. Main switch was worn out inside and not making good contact for soft cycles.
This dryer is 25 years old. I chose to replace all the sensors, fuses, ignitor, gas valve coils, cycle switch and thermostat.
This was cost effective for me, because now, I actually have a good dryer that might just last another 25 years. I might replace the drive belt soon. I'll order from Parts Select. This was easy and fun. Thanks!

I tried to turn my dryer on today and it wouldn’t budge. When I opened the door the lights wouldn’t turn on and there aren’t any lights on the control panel. It’s plugged in and I didn’t trip any breakers. Do you think it’s the thermal fuse or thermostat?
PartSelect logo
Hello Justin, thanks for getting in touch. This sounds like it is the thermal fuse WP3392519, but before replacing it you should inspect and test it for visible damage or indication of faultiness. If the thermal fuse is open and not working, your next check should be the exhaust ducting, since it is the most common reason for a thermal fuse to malfunction. Please let us know if you have further questions.

How do i check the thermal fuse
PartSelect logo
Hi Sandi, That's a great question, you can use an multi meter and test the continuity of the fuse.If no current is detected, it means there's no continuity and the fuse is defective. Good luck with this repair.

My dryer will start drying the clothes, but then after a few minutes, the heating stops. All the controls work - but the dryer seems to be only blowing room temperature air. I have cleaned the duct inside the dryer, and through the duct from the dryer to outside. I read that if the fuse was blown that the dryer would not start. Except for lack of heat throughout the cycle, the dryer thinks it is working just fine. What is my next step?
For model number GGW9250PW1
PartSelect logo
Hi Vickie, Thank you for the question. Normally with the Thermal Fuse the dryer would still run as normally but there will be no heat. So you would still have the appliance start and tumble but blow cold or room temperature air. If the fuse blows it just stops electricity going to the element its self not the appliance. Hope this helps!

My dryer is not heating but still runs. Checked the thermal fuse and its not that.What else could it be?
For model number MEDX700XW0
PartSelect logo
Hi Margaret, Thank you for the question. If the Thermal Fuse has tested to be good, I suggest checking the High Limit Thermostat,PartSelect Number PS11741456.This hi-limit thermostat acts as as safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating. Once the dryer temperature reaches a certain point, this piece will shut down power to the heating element. When defective it will not send power to the element in order for it to heat up to dry the clothes. Hope this helps!

This is the third time in the past seven months that my dryer has blown a thermal fuse. The first time I didn’t think anything of it but after the third time I think there has to be something wrong. I clean out the lint trap every time… what should I check next?
PartSelect logo
Hi Alison, although there are a few causes to this issue, the most common one is the exhaust ducting. If there is too much heat trapped inside the ducting it will cause the thermal fuse to open. What you need to find is any air flow problems. Is there breakage or clogging in your duct? Is it too long? The next thing to check would be if the ducting has condensation or water in it, or if there are dryer sheets in the blower wheel. Lastly you can check the drum seal to see if it is malfunctioning. Best of luck!

My dryer works just does heat up thinking thermal fuse thanks
For model number LEQ9858PW1
PartSelect logo
Hi Dave, Thank you for your inquiry. If your dryer is not heating the most common parts to fix the issue are the heating element, the thermal fuse, the thermal cut-off kit, the high limit thermostat, the heating element connection wire kit and the internal bias thermostat to name a few. To verify which part is causing the issue, you will need a multimeter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Where is the thermal fuse located
For model number WED9750WW0
PartSelect logo
Hi Pete, That's a great question. The thermal fuse is located on the blower fan housing. To get to that part you will need a few tools: a hex socket, a putty knife, a flat head screwdriver, and also a phillips screwdriver. Please make sure to disconnect power to your appliance before ever attempting any repair. First you will want to remove the top panel screws. Place your top panel safely out of the way. Then take a look at your control panel. Press in the tabs on either side to pop it out of place. Disconnect the wire harness and then remove the screws to be able to move your circuit board bracket out of the way. Then remove the screws on the control bracket up front. Now you will want to remove the screws from the lower panel at the bottom of your machine. You can just lift that part right out. After that you will want to disconnect the moisture sensor and door switch wire harnesses. One set of wires should be yellow while the other set are brown, white, and blue. Then you will want to remove the screws at the bottom and top of your front panel. There are two mounting screws on the inside of your door panel. There are on either side of the filter. Remove those as well to be able to pull off the front panel. You will then remove the lower bulkhead screws and only loose the top screws. Don't take those ones off fully. Also remove the screw holding the blower housing in place as well. Then lift the bulkhead off the top screws and set it aside. After that you will remove the dryer belt from the motor pulley and pulley. I would suggest taking a picture of how the belt is installed on your appliance. So that you can reinstall it the same way. Use the belt to help you lift out the drum. Now you will have access to the thermal fuse inside of your machine. You can remove that part by unplugging it and removing the screw. To get your drum back into place, align its rim with the two rear rollers. Then follows these steps backwards and you will be able to put your machine b

The dryer died mid cycle and I haven’t been able to turn it on since. I just can’t figure out what is happening. I already changed the thermal fuse, and it still isn’t starting. What should I look for next? And yes it does have power.

Hi Bradley, thanks for getting in touch. If you already replaced your thermal fuse and that has not fixed the problem, check your door switch to see if it is faulty. I hope this helps!

This dryer has an end of cycle signal that buzzes when the dryer time has ended. It stopped functioning a couple of weeks ago and i could not find a part online that fixes that function. The closest one i can find is the thermal fuse. Is that the likely culprit or is there another one i should suspect?
For model number cabrio dryer WED62005w1

Hello Janice, thank you for getting in touch. The buzzer is located in the main control board for the dryer. You would need to replace the whole control board in order to replace the buzzer. Control board, part number: PS11746535 $211.87 Hope this helps!
